years in the senate, but he's not somebody who seeks the spotlight very often. new mexico's democrat jeff binghamton who has built a reputation among his colleagues as a quiet workhorse. i asked him if the senate by its very nature forces people over time to become more politically pragmatic. >> well, i think that that's happen to folks who came in when i did, like 30 years ago. but frankly i think it's more difficult for members to be flexible in their views coming into the senate today. there's so many litmus tests that you have to go through to get nominated and get elected that particularly on the republican side, i think there's a real effort to pin you down as to where you're going to be on very major issues that are facing the country. >> you have worked with five presidents now, if i get it right, you've served under five president, reagan, bush, clinton, bush, obama. give me some of the pros and cons of how each of them dealt with the senate. start with reagan, what do you think he did right and what could he have done better? >> of course i had many disagreements with presi
-old from new mexico who was brutally assaulted, raped and murdered in 2003. police were able to extract the d.n.a. profile of her killer from underneath katie's fingernails. but they got no match in the offender database. when they finally did get a hit on the attacker's d.n.a. three years later they discovered that the murderer had been arrested repeatedly after 2003. but because he was never convicted, he was not required to submit a d.n.a. sample for the database. had the mexico -- had new mexico required arrestees to submit a d.n.a. sample, katie's killer would have been apprehended and taken off the street years earlier. katie's law applies in new mexico and now 24 states across the country have learned arrestee testing works. this bill would create a new category of grants for states that collect d.n.a. from arrestees for certain felonies, by joining the 25 states plus the federal government that already collect d.n.a. from arrestees, additional state participation will make the national d.n.a. index system more effective and help us solve violent crimes. it does so without author
. joining me with reaction to all this and much more is former new mexico governor bill richardson. thanks for being with us. happy new year. >> thank you, sean. >> sean: governor, we have actually been friendly over the years. you and i have gotten along. i remember i have been out to your estate and you have is been gracious enough to be nice to me over the years. i look at you as somebody that cared about your state and country and worked very hard. if we are now on the brink as a country and americans and businesses have no idea what their taxes going to be. the united states senate has not passed a spending bill in over 13 hyundais, over three years and the president, harry reid, they are all blaming republicans. where is the blame in the intellectual honesty in your party to say this is reckless, irresponsible, on the democrats part? do you acknowledge that? >> sean, i think for the first time tonight they are moving in the right direction. they are talking. there is progress. here is my take. i think that speaker boehner wants a deal. i think mitch mcconnell wants a deal. so does ha
by lawsuits because they may not necessarily be catering to same-sex marriages. saw this over in new mexico with elaine photography when a photographer said i don't care to photograph same-sex marriage ended up being sued. this lawsuit is still going on right now. >> jimmy williams, welcome back. just explain to me. i'm sure there's a logic to it. i always look at these things as social issues. i wish they were decided at the state level and not the federal level. why is this not decided at the state level? why must this go to the supreme court for a constitutional decision? >> well listen, i think if we look back at the history of this country when it comes to the issue of equality, would you ask the state of mississippi in 1960 whether they thought equal rights for african americans was something they should decide on solely? or do you think that was a national issue? i don't think there's anybody today that actually thinks that equal rights for anybody in this country should have been divided by a bunch of racists in the 1960s. or from my home state in south carolina. when you're talking
along with my colleague, tom udall of new mexico, to propose reforms that we think are healthy for dialogue and debate and that we would accept in the minority. if we want to block a simple majority vote, we should have the guts to stand up on the floor of the senate, make our case before our colleagues, and before the american people. if we don't have the courage of our convictions to do that, then we should sit down, shut up, and let a majority go ahead and make the decision. >> so i know you've been talking to many of your colleagues. you've been working on this a long time. do you think that you and senator udall have the votes? and in particular, do you think that the leadership, like senator reid, will be with you on this, as opposed to the merging coalition with mccain and levin? >> senator reid will have the votes for whatever package he puts together. certainly, i'm advocating that that include the talking filibuster. that i think that if we take the momentum that's built up over the past two years and squander it in the fashion proposed by some colleagues today, we mi
, there's new mexico governor susanna martinez, louisiana governor bobby jindal, south carolina governor nicki hailey and brian sandoval. two of the contenders intersect with the contingent of women would-be nominees. along with minnesota congressman michele bachmann. she isn't the only do over on the list. she's joined by fellow pennsylvania senator rick santorum and texas governor rick perry. texas congressman ron paul for once isn't on the list. but his son, senator rand paul, is creating a category with jeb bush that we're going to call relatively speaking. then there are the guys weighing a presidential run who let's say say national name recognition isn't a strong point. john thune and indiana governor-elect mike pence may not win national popularity contests at least this year, but both have been hailed for their leadership potential. as shining stars in the gop. they may have to compete for the party faithful, but those accustomed to a certain level of national fame, if not infamy. those like new jersey governor chris christie. perhaps, the only contender to have actually hugged

this committee, the senator from new mexico and the senator from virginia. our first secretary of the treasury, alexander hamilton, observe energy is a leading character in good government. the president must lead in a divided government and must not advocate his or her -- not abdicate hor or her responsibility. president obama has the responsibility to propose a real bipartisan plan to avert the fiscal cliff that can pass both the house and the senate. withdrawing from the recommendations of the simpson- from thewing recommendations of the simpson- bowles commission, the president could propose a plan that would not only avert the so-called fiscal cliff, but also help us avert the fiscal abyss. if president obama were to offer such a plan, republicans would act favorably. going over the cliff is unnecessary. as it has been observed in "the wall street journal," the president is boxing in the republicans. he is offering them a deal they cannot accept. first, the president has repeatedly called for a balanced solution involving both revenue and less spending. what is obvious to the most casual

-way street where senator udall of new mexico and berkeley and harkin of iowa have ideas out there that don't have balance to them, don't provide enough rice for the minority power to make it possible. >> i would say first, look at the proposal of the carl levin put out a few months ago when the record and you'll see it. as a starting point and something that had been discussed in a bipartisan way in the senate rules committee to several hearings on the filibuster over the last couple of years. chuck schumer, chairman of the committee, lamar alexander, ranking republican talked about the idea of a trade-off disseminating filibusters on the motion to proceed in return for some guarantee of amendments. senator levin's proposal is fairly specific in how that could work. i think you could use that as a starting point and agree to the changes in the week much like what happened in 19785. as part of the agreement that they put in while five for the first time. we came this close by were not going to do it. but when you put that in the posts. peer the other possibility is to get another handshake
